Never.  I've always had the client & server on 
separate machines.

If everything is to be on one PC, isn't there 
an Oberon for Linux which would perform better 
than "Linux-VNC server-VNC client-Oberon"?

I start the Linux VNC server from the user account.

peter at dalton:~$ tightvncserver -geometry 620x730 -depth 24

Then I start the VNC client in NO.

For a system-wide VNC server, I was told to use 
XDMCP but haven't tackled it yet.  If you start the 
VNC server as a root process and then access it with 
Oberon VNC, does the Oberon user have root privilage?
That would be dangerous.  Also a root VNC server 
might have problems with prioritization.
